Cristiano Ronaldo's heat map this season is something else.
The 33-year-old has incredibly transformed his game over the years.
From a speedy winger to an out-and-out striker with some even branding him a 'poacher' for his remarkable goal-scoring statistics.
On Saturday, Ronaldo bagged a brace making him Serie A's leading scorer - not to mention eight assists - and improving his tally to 49 goals for 2018.
But his heat map proves he's more than just a 'poacher'. His heat map brilliantly paints that picture.
This is Ronaldo's heat map this season. It's amazing how wide he is playing. People have called him a striker because he arrives in the box for [nearly] every attack. However, he is similar to Messi in a way of not really having a position and just floating around. pic.twitter.com/o9SwgXSxte- AMKFootball (@AMKFootball) December 29, 2018
Ronaldo's heat map this season, yet we have cules trying to convince us that he's only a poacher. pic.twitter.com/HtGK64coet- Cyma (@cymaaaaaa) December 29, 2018
Incredible. Look at that red outside of the area.
He's prominent in the wings as well as the box, whilst floating around the pitch to dictate play like his former La Liga rival, Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo is on course for another superb term, and he's already made history by surpassing Rui Barros as the highest-scoring Portuguese player in a Serie A season.
